Re: Alternate facts are lies and a lie by any other name is still a lie

   Another of Donald's many lies is the so called under reporting of supposed terrorist events that the MSM somehow missed.     New Agencies around the globe are calling out the Liar in Chief.   

 

    http://www.nj.com/union/index.ssf/2017/02/heres_how_we_covered_the_terror_attack_trump_said.html?ath...

 

    The Twitter King was also confronted because for all the supposed unreported terror events in the US and abroad, somehow Donald forgot to tweet about them.

 

    Salt into the wound:   One media group reported that there were more misspellings than there were actual terror events.   BOOM.

No he doesn't, and he won't. He promised to rein in Wall Street and protect "the little guy" and instead the gutless draftdodging preppytwit is gutting every restriction on Wall Street and the Banksters he can find AND HIS SUPPORTERS LOVE IT! He tells them it will be easier for small business to get loans, but doesn't mention the last World financial disaster was caused by making it easier for home owners to get loans. He tells them it will increase competition and create jobs, but bankS CONTINUE TO CONSOLIDATE and profits have been growing at over 7% for the last several years, but they haven't added ANY more people.

 

See folks, the ONLY way to keep Republicans from screwing the 99% and redistributing OUR wealth to the very top of the 1% IS TO VOTE THEM OUT OF OFFICE.

 

They get elected by stoking fear and hate and once in office do nothing they've promised UNLESS it redistributes more wealth from the middle to the very top, and their voters do not care.

ed, you obviously did not read my past post. There are enough potential conflicts of interest with Donald Trump's business activities and his connection to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Never underestimate congressional Republicans and their interest for self preservation. As Donald Trump's approval ratings continue to drop and he continues to tell whoppers like the media under reporting or failing to report terrorist activities, enough Republicans will become fed up with Trump and come to the realization that he is more of a liability than an asset.

 

As far as dismantling the ACA, good luck doing that without causing major disruptions in health care and crashing the economy. Now it appears they the Republicans are set on cutting social security and Medicare. I warned people during the campaign that this would be coming. The Republican party platform called for raising the eligibility age for Medicare from 65 to 67 and increasing the full retirement age from age 67 (for those born after 1960) to 70. 

 

Do you remember when George W Bush tried to push for "private investment accounts" for younger workers to invest some of their social security contributions. There were protests all acoss the country (many organized by AARP) and those forced a Republican congress to let that idea die. GWB had far more political capital than Donald Trump has. 

 

I guarantee one thing and that is if the congressional Republicans cut social security and Medicare by raising the eligibility age for Medicare and the full retirement age for social security by ramming it through congress; there will be hell to pay. Donald Trump is alienating many of those people who supported him in the campaign. Already many people I know who voted for Trump are regretting their vote. They just didn't believe that he would actually do what he said he would do. How dumb can some people get?

 

You just don't see the organized resistance to Donald Trump and the Republicans in control of congress. This resistance is growing and getting stronger every day. It will become a tidal wave that will eventually topple the Republican party beginning in 2018.

Sorry LK152 -you live in a alternate world of false asumptions. Trump is not going anywhere. He ran on many of the same things you are whining about that he is doing. As far as ACA ,which I know is a chief concern of yours,  it will be repealed but the mess that Obama created will take longer than promise because people need time to  adjust their current coverage. October ,2017 will be the probable date for people to get their new insurance -to take effect January 2018.  All the other false assumptions and your wish to see Trump gone are just pipe dreams. All efforts to impeach Trump will fail and if the Dems attempt to proceed with any such notion the Republicans will never allow it to happen. (both congress and all those that voted for him). 2018 elections will be another disaster for the Dems and will be decades before the Dems control anything.

    Another of the Breitbart gang that have found a new home in Donald's Administration is now saying that Donald et al will continue to use the term:  FAKE NEWS...essentially until the Media capitulates and only says good things about him.   

 

Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to President Donald Trump, said Monday that the administration will continue using the term "fake news" until the media understands that their "monumental desire" to attack the President is wrong.

 

So isn't Gorka demanding that journalist return to stenography?   That, in my opinion is bad for the citizens of this country and news organizations...or do people here want another set of lies engineered to have the US invade another country based on lies?     What ever happened to the idea of Freedom of Speech...is that only embraced by the GOP when they are not in control of WH?

ed, you must be living in some "alternative reality" where truth is fiction and lies are truth. Step away from Fox News and the right wing talk radio and read some more mainstream outlets. Then perhaps you may get a better picture of what is going on. 

 

Since Donald Trump was elected President by a minority of voters, he has continually made false assumptions and accusations as well as told bald faced lies to the public. If he actually believes what he is saying, then perhaps his mental health should be called into question. 

 

The size of the crowd at his inauguration was considerably less than the crowd at President Obama's inauguraitons in 2009 and 2013. This was verified by credible estimates of crowd size. There is absolutely no evidence of "massive voter fraud" in the election. If anything there is credible evidence of Russian interference in support of Donald Trump in the 2016 election. How many more things has Donald Trump said that simply aren't true?

 

Perhaps in your little neck of the woods, people are still supporting Donald Trump. But since his inauguration, there have been some of the largest protest demonstrations, not only in this country but worldwide, since the Vietnam war era. These are not just some wide eyed hippies and malcontents, but it is becoming a well organized resistance to the Republican agenda and Donald Trump. Do you honestly believe that as Donald Trump tells more lies, insults our allies and provokes our adversaries that even Republicans would keep silent about him? 

 

Polls are already showing that Donald Trump has the lowest approval rating of any new President since they began tracking this statistic. Less than 40% of voters are approving of Donald Trump's actions as President. It will only go downhill from there. Normally new Presidents enjoy a "honeymoon" in the polls while their administration is taking shape and their policies are becoming known. 

 

It is only going to get worse, especially among some of Trump's most loyal supporters, For example:

 

  • He has already backed off repealing the ACA until some time next year as it has become obvious that undoing what has been done could prove to be difficult and very unpopular with the voters. 
  • His border wall on the Mexican border will never get built. Only congress can authorize the funds to build this wall and that doesn't seem likely. Mexico won't pay one peso to build that wall. His idea of an import tax on Mexican goods imported into the United States is a non starter in congress and if enacted would cause irreparable harm to the economy. 
  • His ban on travel and entry into the United States from seven majority Muslim countries has been very unpopular and is currently on hold by a federal judge. Insulting the judge won't help Trump's cause. Most likely this ban will be overturned by the court. 

 

Even Republicans in congress will become tired of the constant circus in the White House and defending Donald Trump. Eventually those congressional Republicans will come to realize that Vice President Mike Pence would be a better President and much less likely to upset others. When that happens, and it will come soon, Donald Trump's days are numbered as President. All it will take is for congress to call for an investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election and into Donald Trump's potential conflicts of interest with his business operations. 

 

Then it will be Watergate all over again. Who knows what will be revealed when senators and congress critters begin poking into Trump's finances and business? Who knows what will be revealed about Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin? Rumors have been circulating for months that perhaps Donald Trump is deeply in debt to Russian bankers who have ties to Putin. Suppose that is true? What if Donald Trump's income tax returns or financial statements reveal payments to government officials and his acceptance of gifts from foreign countries? 

 

We don't know what may be revealed should there be an investigation into Donald Trump's relationship with Vladimir Putin and his business interests. If the congress could hold investigations into Hillary Clinton's emails and the attack on Benghazi, they can certainly investigate Donald Trump. They will certainly discover evidence of "high crimes and misdemeanors" worthy of impeachment. 

 

If Republicans see Donald Trump as a liability instead of an asset, they will desert him very fast. Should that happen, you, ed will be right with them spinning it according to the party and Fox News line.

How do you know what a man who lies so much will deliver.  He already backed of his promise to negotiate drug prices.  And, in case you didn't notice, Mexico is not paying for the wall, we are.
